Sadly the venture was short-lived and the Picture House closed again on 31st October 2008. It had been relatively successful, but costs were set to rise and the organisers could not afford to subsidise, even in the short term, a loss.

The Elite is indeed open again for movies and stage performances in 2008, it has now been renamed the Picture house and is enthusiastically run by a team of volunteers. It has two performances daily on Thursday, Friday and Saturday as a general rule.

I filmed this in one of my cinema heritage videos in 2000. Nice venue with a committed staff. Had Dolby stereo even in the early days. The projectionist travels quite a distance to run the show – open usually Thursday, Friday and Saturday each week with a diverse programme of films – arthouse and mainstream. – Terry Ladlow
